'Damaged Good$' - Xrabit & DMG$ (track review)

Owing more to video games, the electro period of Hip Hop and Crunk rap rather than the usual 90s Boom Bap influences I go for, ‘Damaged Good$’ by Xrabit (don’t ask me how to pronounce it) and DMG$ (D.M.Gs) is flippin’ catchy.

Southern MCs DMG$ spit a bit old school and not much like your typical Dirty Southians, accents aside. I guess they will probably get labelled as ‘hipster’ (whatever that means) but really they owe more to Outkast than bright tracksuits and retro trainers. Their lyrics are pretty bugged out but entertainingly comprehensible, this isn’t Lil’ Wayne. What I’m getting at is, this should be popular, but not because it sounds like something else already on the market.

‘Damaged Good$’ is taken from the Ninja Tune album ‘Hello World’ which was released on the 15th of March 2009.
